Just another perspective on the flies, we have been here since Thursday and the only time I noticed was at HS and they were horrible. That was this past Sunday.

LOVE Jiko! Be sure to ask for the Filet with Mac and Cheese... this is not on the menu any longer BUT they will make it if you ask and it is AWESOME!! Did the House of Blues Gospel Brunch a few years ago was pretty good!

Enjoy

I was also wondering about the cab and carseat. Do the cabs require a carseat? I know you are not able to bring one on the disney buses.

On night 2, we returned to our room to find balloons, a card signed by Cinderella and a beautiful chocolate basket for my DD. What magic!
So glad to hear this. We are looking forward to trying "the dark side" in August!!

I'm not really thrilled with changing hotels three times, but I'm still crossing my fingers tat one of our waitlists comes through and we get the whole week at BCV (hey, a guy can dream right?!).

We loved Jiko!

Saw some flys near Hurricane Hannah's, but not many.
Have you tried the rolls at Hurricane Hanna's ?

It sounds like the room we had, in volleyball courtyard, but we were kiddie-corner from the Nantucket Suite.

Oh, right! I've read that before... Bummer. One of my favourite things about ME is getting straight on, but we'll adapt!

We had this room in May 2011. I loved it. At the time it was the only CLGV that had a daybed and we were a family of 5 and did not want a rollaway- so we were very happy that we landed this room. Unfortunately, this go around we could not reserve GVCL for a family of 5 (Disney removed this option for families of 5), so we were disappointed with this. Dee has some of the view pictures on the first page of the thread and I recently posted photos of the room and view in the "beach club room views thread".

Enjoy the room - we did and hoping for another positive room experience when we return in a few weeks!

My hands were literally shaking as I emailed him back to say yes
Not that the GF wouldn't have been amazing, but BC is so us! I'm not excited about the sv, but if looking at a parking lot or rooftop means I get to stay at BC I'll take it.
My kids and dh don't know I have made the switch and I want to find a way to let them know by leaving clues and see if they get it before our trip or not until we arrive. They still think we are booked at GF and while they were super excited about WDW, they weren't overly excited about that resort.
I really want to purchase David Doss' Beach Club print before we go and hang it in the family room and see if they notice. If I cant find it (which I am finding it hard too) can anyone who has been there recently tell me if they have seen it in the shop at BC? Is it possible to call them directly to order something or can I call Disney merchandising even if our trip hasn't happened yet? Sorry for all the questions, but I figured some of the WDW veterans would know
You are welcome, and

I'll add you to the Be Our Guest list for August.



I believe (and hope) the Beach Club prints are still for sale at the Marketplace. Planning some room in my suitcase for one or more in July.

You should try calling the Disney Merchandise number and see where that gets you. Maybe they can get you specifically to the Marketplace.

Thanks for all of the great ideas and chatter! Helps the 158 days move a little faster!!
Sounds great!!!

I don't think I have you on the Be Our Guest list, so i will add you.

Cool! Thank you. We'll be there from the 29th to the 4th. If anyone sees a young couple-- girl with long, blonde hair probably piled on the back of her head, dragging around a guy with a goatee and probably a black t-shirt, feel free to say hi.

GREAT advice, re: lunch at Epcot, then monorail to MK! I love it. Hadn't even thought of that, but that would enable me to finally try out the Tangierine Cafe (slightly out of the way, but not by too much), so that's certainly on the table. I think it'll wind up depending largely on time and what I feel like eating, but I like having options.

Thanks for the suggestions! Sorry if I missed anything. This thread moves quickly, doesn't it?
I'll add your dates to the list.

I am so happy you are considering Tangierine Cafe- one of my faves! I almost suggested it to you, but it is in the opposite direction from the monorail. Give it a shot, but be warned, portions can be HUGE, so you may not get the "light" lunch you are looking for.

Yes, very fast moving thread, today was unusually busy!!!

SO, Dee, you can add me to the list: YC CL GV from August 17th to August 24th. We arrive on August 16th but I am going to book one night at Pop or some other Value since we arrive at 11:30 p.m. and we won't get our luggage for a few hours anyway. I will have to really plan packing. Should be interesting trying to organize that for Amelia since she will be with my sister! I won't be able to pack for her!!! I'll have to get my sister to do her laundry while she's out there. LOL
AWESOME!!!

I'll get right on it!

Also, I was able to get a ressies for the Wishes Dessert Party. DD recently discovered a love of choc. covered strawberries on our trip in April, so I thought this would be a great venue to get them. So, we have two new things for us to do this vacation. I'm keeping both on the DL to help us have a magical trip.


Nice changes/additions. I'll update your listing.

Until then, my GV BC room for a week in June will have to do.

You check in (to AKL) the day we are leaving the World!

It's actually a good policy, I think. In 2006, we arrived on a late flight and they woke us at 3:00 A.M. to deliver the luggage!! It's one of my favorite things too though, so whenever I can I book the earliest flight possible. No worries though. You'll still be in Disney!!!

Did I make a mistake by not doing online check-in?

I was reading such conflicting info about online check-in and for the most part it sounded like there is no benefit other than saving time so we didn't do it. I think Teena also suggested for room requests not to do it as well?

Now people on another forum have me freaking out because they all seem to swear by online check in to get your requests fulfilled and someone even said online check in guests have their requests filled first so those who don't use it may be out of luck.

My one and only request was for a full balcony. And I know I could have gone to another resort and had one guaranteed but none of them appealed to me as much as BC so I took a chance.

We check in Friday so I assume its too late for online check in to make a difference. Crossing my fingers that I may still have my request filled without having done it.

I don't know that online checkin makes a difference. I will explain in my TR but my entire package was cancelled and rebooked AFTER I checked in (from the time it took us to checkin and walk to Epcot there was a snafu, see my earlier post!!).
